CE93-Engineering Data Analysis Mark Hansen, Fall 2009 Assignment 7 Due 10/20/2009 9:10 AM 1. Problem 5.5 in Ross. 2. Strong earthquakes occur according to a Poisson process in the Bay Area with a mean rate of once every 50 years. When such an earthquake occurs, there is a 0.2 probability that each of the six bridges serving the area will collapse. Assume that bridge collapses resulting from the earthquake are statistically independent of each other. a) What is the probability of a strong earthquake occurring in the Bay Area in the next 30 years? b) What is the probability that three bridges will collapse in the event of a strong earthquake? c) What is the probability of not having any earthquake-induced bridge collapses in the next 30 years? d) What is the expected number of earthquake-induced bridge collapses in the next 30 years? 3. Problem 5.22 in Ross. 4. Problem 5.25 in Ross.
